WUNDERLICH. MET WITH HER TODAY. AND BRINGS US THE STORY ALL NEW
AT 6:0
RENEE: THE DOGS’ OWNER TELLS ME
AT FIRST SHE THOUGHT IT WAS BLUE
GREEN ALGAE, BUT ONCE THE
TOXICOLOGY REPORT CAME BACK THAT LEAD TO MORE QUESTIONS AND NOW
SHE WANTS ANSWERS.>>THEY WENT FROM HEALTHY TO
DAD IN 30 MINUTES. RENEE: EARLIER THIS MONT
DEANNE WISHERT SAYS HER TWO
YELLOW LABS, MAX AND ELLIE,
STARTED SHAKING AND FOAMING AT
THE MOUTH AFTER PLAYING AROUND
DUNCAN CREEK OFF LITTLE NORTH CAROLINA ROAD, ON THE LAURENS
COUNTY/NEWBERRY COUNTY LINE. MAX DIED ON THE WAY TO THE VET
AND ELLIE HAD TO BE PUT DOWN. A LAUREN’S COUNTY SHERIFF’S
DEPUTY WENT TO THE SCENE ON THE
14TH, AND NOTED IN THE REPORT
THAT THE WATER WAS ’STAGNANT AND
GREEN.’
AT FIRST, WISHERT WONDERED IF TOXIC BLUE-GREEN ALGAE WAS TO
BLAME, BUT THE TOXICOLOGY REPORT
SHOWS CARBAMATE AND CARBOFURAN
INSECTICIDES THAT CAN BE DEADL
TO PUPS AND PEOPLE.>>THERE’S SOMEONE HERE EVERYDAY
THE CHILDREN COME DOWN HERE AND
SWIM. AND THEN WOULD SWIM WITH MY DOGS
DOWN HERE. RENE DEPUTIES DO NOT HAVE ANY
SUSPECTS AT THIS TIME. WISHERT IS HOPING SOMEONE WILL
COME FORWARD, OR INVESTIGATO
WILL FIGURE OUT WHY THIS POISON
WAS IN AN AREA WHERE DOGS AND
CHILDREN PLAY.>>RIGHT NOW, I CAN’T TELL YOU
WHO DID THIS, BUT I WOULD HATE
FOR THIS TO HAPPEN TO SOMEBO
ELSE. RENE THEY ARE OFFERING A $1000
REWARD FOR ANY INFORMATION
LEADING TO AN ARREST. IN
